We want to welcome all new members & the old timers that stop in from time to time. For some of you that don't know this forum was started in 2002 by Jack (yellowjacket), & Binnie with Mike being there from the beginning. I joined in 2002 after purchasing my first vette a 68. Over the years many people have joined & left. We have made many friends here & shared a common interest & many more it seems. I became the owner of the forum several years ago & with the help of good friends we manage to keep it a great place to learn & share our knowledge & experiences with others. So to all who join new or old please be assured any question no matter how silly you may think it is will be respected & answered in a professional manner. So really don't ever be feel intimated about asking for advice, you will never see a disrespectful answer posted here.

Very well said. Great post reminding the new and old members of the history of the forum and how this is a great place to ask and share knowledge of the C3 and other vehicles.  It proves that bigger is not better when it comes to forums.

Well said Alan!

I've made several wonderful lifelong friends on this forum with Alan and Rick who posted here being among them. Some great memories. I look forward to coming on this forum almost daily. (check my post count  Cheesy )

I've had great information on fixing or how-to's when I had yellowjacket for 10 years that saved me hundreds of dollars.

I just bought another Corvette from a friend I've met several times, Mike who Alan mentioned, a couple weeks ago.

So grab a cup a mojo and hang around awhile.  Smiley

Greetings!  I picked up my dream car Sept of last year.  Got me a Classic White 1977!! I paid $3800 for the girl, and she drove the hour home, and hasnt left the garage since!  I rebuilt the carb, and removed an old Milesmaster Pressure Regulator that was leaking so far...I am no mechanic, but I'm a quick study and a fast learner!  Thanks in advance for regurgitating some knowledge my way.  Its my retirement car (I'm 29 now and need it drool worthy by 60 fellas!).  I'm not sure where to start... but I've got my work cut out for me.  Glad to be here!

Welcome to the form Chadwicked. As for where to start that's up to you. I do the suspension & breaks first, then the engine & drive train. Then any electrical problems & move on to the interior. Paint is always last for me. But before anything check for RUST or the whole thing becomes a waste of time.

Hey Folks, Checking in as I just bought a '72. I was reading through many of the interesting and informative posts here on the C3 Forum for the last month before I bought the car. So, I guess the next thing to do, is login as a member. Cheers!
